THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Rockography Restaurant Review

: This Greenwich Village rock-themed restaurant is like the Hard Rock Café but with gusto. Servers wear Iron Maiden and Judas Priest T-shirts (and you get the impression it’s really not just for show), the speakers blast Led Zeppelin, menus are pasted to the back of legendary rock ‘n’ roll album covers, and the walls are, of course, bedecked in music paraphernalia. The menu is loaded with rock references too. You can start off with a cocktail: Comfortably Numb (gin, St. Germaine, lemon) or a Stairway to Heaven (Grey Goose espresso, café de crème, Nutella). Or move right to the food, which, for the most part, is more like sloppy grunge than crossover hits. The chicken in the buffalo sliders was dry and tasteless. The flaccid F.U. Burger (fried egg and maple bacon on a burger) is far from worth its high price tag. The one hit wonder, though, is the deep-fried PB&J, which is like a gooey power ballad: it’s sappy and catchy enough to love but you don’t want to end the show with it. Unfortunately, though, Rockography is all out of encores.
